Two Things Challenge: Shadows / Patterns (Color)

Shadow and Pattern : Stairs at a church on Underwood and 5th Streets NW

This week's Two Things Challenge was Shadows / Patterns. I managed to get several good shots for this challenge and am dividing my entry into two parts--a set in color and a set in black and white.

Pattern : Wood Grain : Deck of the Susan Constant : Jamestown, Virginia

The last one is intriguing, I can not figure out what it is, perfect!

Nice patterns, I haven't taken any photos for stripes and patterns yet. I'll try :-)

Rob: It's a close up of an elaborate set of security bars on a window. Normally I see vertical bars on windows, but this was a sunburst kind of thing.

Missy: Please do! We'd love to see what you'd contribute. Look forward to you joining us in all the fun!

Nessa: Thanks! I think this was a fun challenge.

I love these colorful pattern shots. Nicely done!

The stairs are amazing, and yet looking at them they wouldn't translate as nicely into black and white I think. While I would say the same thing about the beach picture below, the translation to colour would take away from the pictures optical quality.

Wow, that first photo is like looking at a mass of...I'm not quite sure. I've got red/green colorblindness. I can see that that is red and green but next to one another, it's freaky to me. Kinda blurry and sorta moving? Cool but trippy. Wish you could see it like I see it - just for a minute.

Maya: Thanks! As usual, I had fun with this one.

Cele: I agree. You have a good eye!

GIL: I need to get those glasses that simulate color blindness so I can see what you're seeing. I'll bet that first one is quite trippy indeed.

I'm loving the last photo.

I think I prefer the B&W photos, though they are all good :)

Marley: That last one's kind of fun, isn't it?
